SEPTEMBER 2018 THE SHOP 57 Jeep JL/JLU Wheel Spacers Synergy MFG, San Luis Obispo, California, offers Jeep Wrangler JL/JLU Wheel Spacers, designed to provide additional clearance for lifts and larger tires. The spacers have a 5-on-5-inch bolt pattern and are a direct fit for the JL's larger 14mm wheel studs. Wheel spacer width is 1-5/8 inches, the minimum width required to clear the wheel studs. Features include: wheel hub centric for increased strength, CNC machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum, corrosion-resistant red anodizing and high-grade wheel studs and lug nuts. Surface Prep Spray Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), Avon Lake, Ohio, offers Boom Mat Surface Prep Spray, a versatile, one-step primer spray that prevents and neutralizes rust. Developed to be used prior to installing Boom Mat damping material, the primer prepares any metal surface for paint or body filler and can be used to prolong the life of any ferrous metal. After application on metal, it dries quickly to a black, paintable surface. Each 16-ounce can covers 35 to 55 square feet. Initial dry time is three to 10 minutes. Mazda Piston Kits MAHLE Motorsport, Fletcher, North Carolina, offers PowerPak and PowerPak+ piston kits for Mazda MZR applications, machined from ultra-strong, lightweight, 2618 alloy slipper skirt forgings. The pistons are machined with advanced crown and profile designs to ensure peak performance and durability. They are then triple-coated beginning with a phosphate dry film lubricant to protect the pin bores from galling, followed by an application of proprietary anti-friction Grafal coating applied to the skirts. The top ring grooves are also hard anodized. Ambient Air Sensor Monitor Banks Power, Azusa, California, introduces the AirMouse ambient air density module, the first in its line of intelligent sensors for the iDash 1.8 Super Gauge. Designed to measure the power potential of air entering all naturally aspirated, turbo and supercharged engines, the module is a rugged military-grade weather station with scientific accuracy. The waterproof system utilizes a Gortex vent to allow for precise measurement of pressure, temperature and humidity while protecting the electronics inside. 426 Hemi Ignition Cable Sets Vintage Wires, Tecumseh, Michigan, offers a new wire set specifically for 426 Hemi applications. The 7.8mm braided spark plug wires feature a lacquer- covered cotton braid outer casing wrapping a spiral-wound suppression core for high-tech performance and old- school style. Distributor cap ends are not finished so that they can be custom- tailored to length—whether run through a loom or simply over the valve covers. The cable sets for 426 Hemis are available in six color options. PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS Fuel Tanks Aeromotive Inc., Lenexa, Kansas, presents new Gen II Stealth fuel tanks featuring Phantom technology that enables a quiet, high-flow EFI pump and baffle to maintain an ample fuel supply around the inlet of the pump while ensuring consistent fuel delivery and drivability even in low fuel conditions. The tanks have outlet and return ports along with electrical terminals positioned in the OEM location that enable flush installation to the vehicle floor with no strap modifications or spacers. They are offered in 200- and 340-lph fuel pump configurations.
